I don't think that I could get so close to any of these without a whole lot of panicking, great photos as usual.

Gigi said...

The eyes on that spider are going to haunt me now.

Mark said...

I don't mind bugs, some of them can look pretty cool, but I still don't want any on me.

ZielonaMila said...

Fantastic photographs, wonderful face of the nature. I am greeting

Nancy Claeys said...

Holy cow -- that's some spider.

heebie jeebies!

TexWisGirl said...

ooh, the 3rd and 4th are my favorites. love all of these, though. they don't creep me out to see them. :)

Furry Bottoms said...

Eek, Shudders and cringes!!!

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

I do not like that spider. Nope.

I'm glad you found all those at your house and not mine!

Lynn Proctor said...

i have to admit, i was looking at the pics, sideways---still i could tell they were great!

Michelle said...

Awesome photography. The second to last grasshopper could win an award....beautiful job. And that orange bug, just lovely (the photo, not the bug). :)

Annmarie Pipa said...

they seem to be thinking more and working harder than people!

YumYum PiratePig said...

Wow! Actually, up close and personal they are so well-crafted each bug is. Just look at that (is it a?) grasshopper and his "armor!" Thanks, Ms.A, for showing me - AGAIN - tremendous beauty in details through your lens. I can't say I would want them on me, either, but through your camera they are quite lovely, actually. I see a book in your posts since getting your new camera, BTW...the pics and your posts DO TELL A STORY and over time a "style" - your way of seeing - is making its mark! Well done, as ever!!! Love Wordless Wednesday. (Too bad I have to use so many words.)

Barbara said...

Oh, these are great, especially the grasshopper!

Betty Manousos said...

the two bottom photos are great close-ups!
i always start quivering in fear when i see a bug. a crotchet especially.

big hugs!

Jimmy said...

Great pictures, and wasn't that wasp nest just amazing.

Sally said...

WOW!

These are stunning photo's, MsA!

Hunter got stung by a wasp the other day, and I had to hunt up the nest! Bye bye to them!

They don't creep me out to see them. Actually, everyone is pretty unique in it's own way. They're all part of nature and have a purpose I suppose on the food chain and reason for being here; but just keep them off of me. I can't stand having a bug crawling on me or giving me a freaky stare down.

Mamma has spoken said...

Insects are bugs but not all bugs are insects, hence your title is great along with the pictures!

So. Cal. Gal said...

What is it with you and bugs? BIG : )

Nice pics, regardless of your creepy subjects.

woopig said...

THat first shot of the spider and his eyes would so make Joey faint.

Maybe I should show it to him. . . ; )

Jenny said...

Oh no! Not grasshoppers.

Yikes.

I feel all crawly and creepy now.

Ewwwww.

Grasshoppers.

Jen Forbes said...

OK I admit I a bit of a freak (in a good way) when it comes to bugs when they get into the house. I catch them and bring them outside and free them before hubby steps on them, yucky!

CatherineDogs3 said...

These are just amazing. I love the grasshopper.

Suldog said...

Those are some of the best bug photos I've ever seen. Well done!

Suldog said...

By the way, I am the same as Jen (except I'm a guy, of course.) I catch and release, as possible. Wrote something about it, a long time ago...

Katherines Corner said...

that is a whole lot of bugs my friend!! great photos. xo

NCmountainwoman said...

I love bugs...when they are outside where they belong and are not biting me!

troutbirder said...

Beutiful... Yikes I can't believe I said that.... I tend to think of those old B movies where the bugs having been radiated grow very large and take over the world.

Vicki Lane said...

What great photos, Ms. A! You have captured these guys beautifully!

Amy said...

Gorgeous. As my eyes begin to not focus so well on the little things (great for my wrinkles, I tell ya... I'm 10 years younger without my glasses on), I truly appreciate the details in these "little things" that you share here.

Beautiful, except the spider. I can't help but feel he's looking right at me.

Mom of the Perpetually Grounded said...

I have a feeling those eyes will be in my dreams tonight ; )But that yellow bug is very cool!

Farida said...

I like best the third photo.. not sure if it's a lady bug. Did you take all of these? You are getting better and better :)

George said...

You're getting to be very, very good with macro photography. I like the eyes on that spider as well.

Chatty Crone said...

All my friends are here - I can't believe no one told me about you.

I LOVE the name of your blog.

And the photos are awesome.

And I love his eyes too - spooky!

Kathleen's Blog said...

Wicked good pictures!!!! Did you take these in a natural environment, or were you at an insectarium?

Again-fab fotos ;o)

Powdered Toast Man said...

I think I have seen those eyes in my nightmares.

Help! Mama Remote... said...

AHHHHHHH #1 is so creepy! The other bugs look cute. LOL
